"SOAP" notes are a style of documentation that emoticon medical professionals use to record information about patients.

This acronym (SOAP) stands for (described in an abbreviated form):

subjective: The information the patient reports.
objective: Test results and observations.
assessment: The diagnosis of the injury.
plan: The next steps for treatmeant.
Often the Assessment and Plan sections are grouped together!
